Hi,

I personally like the concept of multi-module applications as described by Ivan Motsch in this forum. IDesktopExtension has come up in Juno release as promised. So, I believe it is ready for production. Is there a short introduction how to use it?

Thanks for your time...

Stefan

Hi Stefan

A desktop extension gives you the possibility to add or modify desktop operations like showing forms on startup, add additional desktop menus or outlines, modify forms before they are displayed, etc.

To use Desktop Extensions just override injectDesktopExtensions and add your extensions:

@Override
protected void injectDesktopExtensions(List<IDesktopExtension> desktopExtensions) {
  List<IDesktopExtension> extensions = loadYourExtensions();

  for (IDesktopExtension e : extensions) {
    e.setCoreDesktop(this);
  }

  desktopExtensions.addAll(extensions);
}


There are a lot more things to come which helps you to make your app modular. One thing is the InjectTo annotation which will already be shipped with the first service release (3.8.1) [1].
Additional support will follow with Kepler (3.9.0) [2].
